She has been called right-wing radio’s “high priestess of hate,” and now Laura Ingraham may end up being Donald Trump’s White House Press Secretary.
Only a day after naming RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as his Chief of Staff and white supremacist Steve Bannon as his top policy adviser, it is being reported that Trump is seriously considering Ingraham as his White House mouthpiece.

The selection of Ingraham would put yet another anti-women racist in a position of government power.
Ingraham not only opposes a woman’s right to choose, she attacked Anita Hill and worked to smear her for accusing Clarence Thomas of sexually assaulting her. Ingraham also called for defunding the Violence Against Women Act which helps fight domestic violence.
Ingraham is also an unabashed racist who wrote an awful book attacking President Obama and his family.
Furthermore, Ingraham would be hostile toward the media.
CNN points out, “She has been much more openly critical of news outlets and journalists over the years. In radio and TV segments, she has decried the biased “Hillary media” and questioned some journalists’ patriotism.”
But that’s not all.
Ingraham also accused President Obama of letting the Ebola virus into America, blamed women and girls for rape because of the way they dress, mocked hungry children, and claimed that emergency contraception empowers child rapists.
She even gave a wink to white supremacists across the country by giving a Nazi salute after her speech at the RNC in July.
Here’s the video via YouTube. Her salute is at the 2:48 mark.
It sure looks like Donald Trump is going to stock his administration with racists and woman-haters whose policies will only appeal to the Neo-Nazis, the KKK, and conservative “Christians.”
